Demi no longer feels the pressure to appear perfect online. 1
Demi shared an unedited photo of herself in a bikini in 2019 and she made us feel so understood. "I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited -- and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me," she captioned this fire snap. "This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards."
Demi wore a teenie tiny bikini with so much confidence. 2
Demi showed off her curves in a mirror selfie and looked incredible. She is no longer giving into the pressure of having to look a certain way and is embracing herself as she is. "No photoshop pls & thank u," she captioned this pic.
She made bare-faced selfies a common thing on her page. 3
The 27-year-old singer loves taking fresh-faced selfies, which most celebs shy away from. She looks flawless and once even started a No Makeup Monday trend on her Instagram.

She showed us that it is possible to survive body image issues. 8
She previously confessed that her body image issues started at age 3. "When I started having body image issues I remember being 3 years old in a diaper and rubbing my hand over my stomach...and I remember thinking in my head ‘I wonder if one day this will ever be flat?’” she said in an interview with Katie Couric.
She is proud of her curves. 9
The pop star is serious about showing the real her. "Behind the scenes (and bathroom door) of my Allure cover shoot.. Posting a #nophotoshop pic because I'm proud to show my body the way it naturally is.. (And there was great lighting...)," she wrote as the caption.
Demi also needs a reminder to focus on herself. 11
She has a tiny "me" tattooed on her ring finger. The finger is usually reserved to symbolize your union to another person, but now Demi is using it to show that she comes first. "Me first 🖤 thank you @winterstone for my new forever reminder.. #i🖤me," she explained the tattoo.
She focuses on being fit to keep herself healthy inside and out. 12

She is not afraid to show the world when she makes mistakes. 15
Demi knows that life can get hectic and sometimes we take a step backwards when we're trying to make progress. She was honest with her fans and accepted that she made a mistake in her 2018 song "Sober" where she revealed that she had relapsed after being sober for more than five years.
Demi taught us how to empower ourselves with "Sorry Not Sorry." 16
She gives us anthems that inspire us to push forward and bring out the fierce woman that lives within all of us. Her song "Sorry Not Sorry" seems like it is aimed at an ex, but it can also be used as inspiration to silence any naysayers.
She uses her workouts to release any bad energy. 18
